Yes, I said in her finger! Edit: Warning - Some images may be disturbing to some.
I am so sorry I looked. That is really gross! Glenn
I saw the gross photos and X-ray at the above link, but still have to wonder: Just how could someone lose a ring INSIDE their finger? Did skin grow around it and encase it?
Oh God I hope I never lose my belt!
That's the hand of a 44 year-old? That settles it, I'm only dealing with young trophy wives. It'll be like Children of the Corn, only different. Brad
Very strange, but I have to wonder how something like that could happen. The nearest I can figure is that she developed a staph infection (probably from something getting in under the ring and never cleaned out), which caused massive swelling. I'd love to hear a medical explanation though (what's on the site is pretty terse).
Come to think of it, I haven't seen my belt or shoes in a few months.....
Why o why did I click on that link? . -- H
I think it's interesting from a medical perspective. I'd like more detail on the how/why of it all, though.
The article mentions mxyedema or myxoedema for those addicted to the British spelling. This is associated with profound hypothyroidism (this case), and can cause non-pitting edematous swelling. Possibly the woman's fingers swelled, and she was not mentally capable of caring for herself, the infection set it, and a granuloma formed. Similar, but not exactly the same: dogs who have a collar placed on them as pups and not properly attended; the collar grows into the neck as the dog grows. Usually presented for foul odor and/or swollen head, usually at 5:30 PM on Friday, usually with the statement "I ain't got no money."
Well, at least she wont have to worry about her wedding ring going down the drain.
Thanks for the pics... I'll be using them as my excuse not to wear my wedding ring. "Honey, do you want me to wind up looking like this!??! Now, I'll be home around 2 am... don't wait up."
"You watched it! You cant unwatch it!!"
I am proud to say that I did not click on the link.
I'm also skipping thanks to the good advice from the poor bastards that went before me. It SOUNDS pretty terrible.
There's a bunch of girlie-men in this thread. It's only a lumpy, swollen finger. There's no blood or anything.
